Apples are the one fruit my everyone in my family will eat, so we always have them around, even when they’re not in season. Because I always have them around, I’m always looking for recipes to put them in. I don’t have to look very far since Rachel’s blog has an abundance of apple recipes made by her and so many other talented bloggers! Take a gander, there’s a gazillion amazing recipes with apples on here! Alrighty, onto these biscuits…

Biscuits have been made way more complicated than they need to be. Yes, a perfect circle with sky high flakey, buttery layers is always welcomed. However, a simple, uncomplicated drop biscuit is just so satisfying too. A fresh-from-the-oven, melt-in-your-mouth, humble biscuit. Delicious. The thing is, I can never EVER leave well enough alone. So I went ahead and added cheddar and apples. It’s a combination I eat almost daily anyway, either as a snack or meal. So why not combine them in a simple biscuit? Exactly. I do make plain biscuits often, but adding the apples and cheddar is tasty variation.

Eat them for breakfast with eggs and bacon, or alongside a salad for lunch. And during the fall and winter when soups and stews make a regular appearance on your dinner table, biscuits should too. Because, why not?!
